Hughes v. Goord 97-CV-6431 (W.D.N.Y.) (Siragusa, J.)

This class action secured the right of Native Americans to practice their religion at every Correctional Facility in New York. Prior to this action DOCS permitted the practice at only a few facilities. Native American inmates may now have congregate festivals throughout the year, weekly study sessions and make daily prayers in the traditional way.  For a link to the decision and order see: http://www.clearinghouse.net/chDocs/public/PC-NY-0040-0003.pdf
